To Prepare Cashew Powder

Take 2 cups of cashew (KAJU) nuts and grind them to make powder.

Add cashew powder and stir this mixture continuously to prevent the formation of lumps, Mix it until it’s consistency becomes dense (Thick).

Add 2 tablespoons of ghee & cook it on medium flame until its consistency becomes thick.

Now turn off the flame and mix the paste thoroughly for a while.

To Prepare Kaju Katli

Grease a plate with ghee & transfer the cashew paste onto the plate and stir the paste continuously in the plate so that it cools down quickly.

Then take a butter paper and grease it with ghee.

Grease your hands with ghee and take cashew dough and place it onto butter paper, Cover the dough with butter paper.

Roll the dough using a rolling pin (Belan) and roll it to form approx. 1cm thick square and keep it in the refrigerator for about 20 to 30 minutes to cool it.
